"What is home without a paper?"
A home without a newspaper is no
home at all. It is a kind of dreary
den-a rendezvous of bedbugs and
fleas, where the inhabitants live in
blissful ignorance of what the world
is doing. It is inhabited by a class
who do not know who is president or
what he is president of-who never
find out that, a thing has happened
until long after everyone else has for
got ten it. The children grow up in
rags and dirt, while the wife generally
finds consolation in darning socks and
lugging a pipe loaded with long, green
tobacco, and the man generally lives
because he can't die and he is too lazy
to kill himself. lie goes out on elec
tion days and does not know who he is

grandfather voted for.
